What are some common symptoms of a sinus infection?
When you come down with a sinus infection, the tissue around your sinuses become inflamed and swell. This swelling is why this condition is also known as sinusitis. Your sinuses main job is to produce mucus to keep the inside of your nose moisturized. Whoever, when your sinuses become blocked, they fill with fluid where bacteria and viruses can grow and cause an infection.
Nearly 40 million people in the United States come down with a sinus infection at least once a year. A sinus infection can also be the result of a common cold, allergies, nasal polyps, or a deviated septum. A sinus infection lasts ten to fourteen days.
Your sinuses are structures in your skull that connect the nasal cavity via small orifices called the ostium. These orifices can be blocked very easily by swelling or inflammation caused by a bad cold or allergies. When they are blocked, they can no longer drain the mucus from your sinus, making infections possible. You may be diagnosed with an acute infection if two or more symptoms appear and/or you have thick green or yellow discharge from your nose. The symptoms of a sinus infection include:
- Bad Breath
- Loss of Smell
- A cough
- Pain and pressure in your face.
- Stuffy nose
- Nasal discharge
